If prostitution is supposed to be illegal, tell me why our government, on individual and group levels, from senators, congressmen and worst of all the presedency, are so adicted to not selling their bodies but a crime much worst in selling their souls, their beliefs and any morale fiber they may have to the highest bidder, any lobbyist willing to give them the highest contribution, any foreign government willing to invest the most, why has the presidency become an oppertunity for an individual to prepare his pocket for retirement, and most dire of all, when will someone sincerely stand up aginst this..Polititians fight to deregulate big businesses like Enron, Freddie and Fannie and ultimately the populus always suffers while they fill their pockets for the favours of deregulation, Polititians cryout to us to vote for less government but what we dont realize is that their tears are not for us the millions of US citizens but for the lobbyist and the companies who fill their pockets best, the very companies who ship our jobs overseas to the highest bidder then calls us "a nation of winers" because we can no longer cover our morgages, or send our children to the schools we want or even put food on our dinner tables... Friends, we can no longer sit buy and continute to just "whine" we must fight and by fight I mean vote. the vote is our kick in the ass of big business, the very businesses who post $4,000,000,000 profit margins over previous years in these recession times where we cant even put gas in our cars and are forced to take the bus, when we are forced to skip lunch because we had to use the money for an electric bill. We havee got to stop them from screwing us, we are not slaves and we are not so stupid that we cant see what is being done to us, we cannot sit in complacency any longer....not another 4 years GET REGISTERED AND VOTE, VOTE FOR YOUR WELLBEING, VOTE FOR YOUR AMERICAN DREAM AND THE DREAMS OF YOUR CHILDERN VOTE FOR YOUR PERSUIT OF HAPPYNESS.

Wikipedia:No original research/noticeboard discussion on deleting material from this article[edit]

The debate here is whether you can use any information in this article UNLESS the article explicitly uses the phrase "Energy Lobby." Some are saying you must take out any information where the source doesn't use that phrase. If you aren't familiar with wikipedia policy please read Wikipedia:No original research and Wikipedia:These are not original research before opining. Thanks!

Energy LobbyFossil fuel based energy lobbyRelisted. Vegaswikian (talk) 22:21, 27 June 2011 (UTC) Many other Energy industries with lobbies, this title is outdated by decades. 99.19.47.35 (talk) 07:44, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Strong Oppose. It's true that there are other "energy lobbies", but, when one refers to the energy lobby, one means this one. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 08:42, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Neutral on Fossil fuels lobby; provided this article remains a redirect, and is not changed to an alleged disambiguation page. It's clearly the primary use. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 08:10, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
Why not Fossil fuels lobby? —Tamfang (talk) 02:06, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment isn't this a US article? Shouldn't US be in the title somewhere? Sure as hell doesn't look like the Canadian one. 65.94.47.63 (talk) 06:52, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
United States fossil-fuels lobby ? 97.87.29.188 (talk) 23:24, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Royal Dutch Shell is headquartered in The Hague = not all, so not a "United States article". So, I'd agree with User:Tamfang. 99.190.81.244 (talk) 07:12, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
